Feedback is powerful.
As we respond to it, learn from it, and sometimes resist it, our writing-muscle grows.
But the process can be complicated ...
-- "I can't find the right 'beta readers'."
-- "They don't give me anything useful."
-- "They all have a different opinion."
-- "They hated my book and broke my heart."
Multi-award-winning author Belinda Pollard has faced these challenges and developed unique solutions, drawing from her work as a developmental editor over two decades.
This practical, enjoyable book shows how to get the feedback you need and apply it to your writing in a way that strengthens your book while protecting your vision and your voice.
Use the Power of Feedback to Write a Better Book will help you become the writer you were born to be.
Use the Power of Feedback to Write a Better Book was originally published as Beta Reader Superhero.
